I am sharing my favorite Japanese Restaurant in the Portland Oregon Metro Area with a bit of trepidation. However, I will overcome my selfish tendencies and continue with this review... ;>)

Lettering

There! I've done it, God help me and don't make me wait in line longer than I deserve. In fact here is the deal. In return for this review, you have to promise to give me "cuts" in line if you see me there. I mean fair is fair, right?

We had heard about this restaurant for quite a while, but every time we went by there was a line out the door and around the corner of the building. I being a rather impatient soul when I'm hungry always talked my wife out of waiting in line. BIG MISTAKE! I could have been enjoying this taste treat many, many months before.

We finally took the plunge one evening and got in line and boy am I glad we did. The food is great, the portions large and the price is reasonable. What more could you ask for from a restaurant?

Our favorite standby is the Teriyaki Salmon Dinner. They start you off with green tea to drink, next is a nice bowl of miso soup. You then get a cucumber salad before the main course. And now the main course: A very generous portion of grilled teriyaki salmon on a large bed of veggies with a bowl of steamed rice. But wait, that's not all! What meal would be complete without desert! They give you a bowl of ice cream with your choice of 4 different flavors to make sure you're full. All of the above for only $11.95 woohoo! I'm in foodie heaven. ;>)

Now what great Japanese dinner would be complete without sushi? Make sure you try that out also! We keep threatening to just eat just sushi for our dinner, but we love our salmon so much we just can't bring ourselves to do it!

Now remember, I get "cuts" in line. And just so you recognize me, I've shaved my mustache. Also I'll be the guy who tells you "hey look over there!" and when you turn back; I'll suddenly be in front of you in line. ;>)

I wonder if they will give me a "free dinner" for blogging about them??? Now that would be sweet! ;>)

Happy Dining...
